Barcelona Photo Evidence | Sights and Eats


Back from Barca! What an amazing trip - phenomenal hotels, ridiculous weather, potentially illegal quantities of Estrella Damm, beautiful sights and more squid than I ever thought I'd consume.  Here's Part 1 of the photo evidence. Shops and hotels to follow! (Above: Columbus Monument)




Gaudi's famous and forever unfinished Sagrada Familia


Some of the selections at Bar Morrysoom, a fun little divey tapas joint into which we stumbled


The old customs house


A "tattooed" lady outside parliament


The Catalan Parliment


A greenhouse in the Parc de la Ciutadella



Yoohoo (kinda)


The pharmacies are ridiculously beautiful - and all completely art nouveau


London Bar, one of Hemingway's old haunts


Like a Corinthian column, but a tree! (Probably a wildly famous building)


A key feature to the cloisters? Animals! Swans galore (often violent lil buggers) at Barcelona Cathedral. (Another one had chickens).


Mucho muerte: skulls + crossbones were all over everything. This, along with loads of amazing crests are carved into the floor of the Barcelona Cathedral's cloisters.

    Barcelona is the most fabulous city. I would live there if I spoke Spanish. It epitomizes modern Spain, an eclectic blend of tradition, history, and European sophistication.

  2. I recently spent ten days in Paris and the trip, though beautiful, nearly killed me. Pray tell, is travel just for the youthful? From now on, I think I will just have to look at pictures of the worldly places.

  7. great evidence, i always forget to photograph such details.

  8. That green house at the Parc de Cuitadella (pictured) actually opens up into a weekend restaurant in the evenings in the summer, with a small band, candlelit tables and lovely food. I love that you took that photo, that park was a favorite haunt of mine back when I lived in Barca.
